The volleyball season for middle school and high school players is right around the corner and if you're looking to sharpen your skills ahead of the new season, you're in luck.
Sarah Hogue of Dauphin and Olivia Michel will be hosting a co-ed grass volleyball camp from July 27-30 at Vermillion Park Sportsplex. There will be two sessions a day from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The cost to take part is just $250 and players will be put on the court with players their age.
For the past two years, Hogue has had the opportunity to play at the college level with the Lakeland College Rustlers. Despite not playing in any games, she has had the chance to practice with some of the top college players in the country.
"I've done a lot of coaching during my time with the Rustlers, we hold a few different camps," said Hogue. "So I'm excited to bring back what I've learned to my community here in Dauphin."
Under current public health orders, the camp can accommodate up to 50 players, with about 35 spots remaining open as of Thursday morning. Whether you're a skilled elite player or you just want to learn the game, the camp is open to players of all skill levels.
Hogue says players will learn offensive tactics, defensive positioning, and everything else it takes to have success on the court.
"This camp will give players a great opportunity to improve their skills ahead of the new season," ended Hogue. "It's going to be a great experience for everyone involved and I can't wait to get going next Tuesday."
